11:19 pm
and damp. it's fog forming. the rain looks like it's trying to move away, but the air mass we're left with isn't going to clear up quite yet. we'll put it over and show you. coastal flood advisories for the next high tide cycle or two because it's already fallen and because of an easterly wind that's still in effect. temperaturewise, with all of this rain coming through, we just did not warm up today at all. we had that northeasterly wind and it's kind of calming down at this point, but that's part of why we're seeing the fog form overnight. and temperatures, 68 degrees. we were saying this earlier in the show. you think it's warm, but that was pretty much our high on today. 69 degrees. that is it. the average is 87 degrees. very far away from that record of 104 degrees. now, there is another round of heat brewing. it's out to our west. that's the kind of air that's
11:20 pm
moving our way. but not quite yet. we're still lost in this until at least tomorrow. what we think is going to happen is seem very bright and temperatures will jump pretty quickly, but this front is trying to wash itself out. tomorrow is more or less the transition day. that's because another front is moving our way. now, by monday afternoon, the chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms, the temperatures are getting into the 90s before that happens. the northeasterly wind is turning around to the southeast. very light winds. we're going to see locally dense fog and some drizzle, going down the about 63 degrees tonight and then 81 for the high because we think some sunshine is going to break through to the afternoon. take a look at the days to 91 on monday with a chance for afternoon thunderstorms and another front is going to come our way on wednesday or thursday. there's a chance for rain or thunderstorms in that one.
